Downtown lofts are a hot commodity! Just last month I was waiting in the lobby at Nu River Landing for my customer to do her walkthrough when I noticed a young woman at the concierge asking to see one of the units there. I was close enough to hear the conversation, and I could hear the front desk clerk stating he can’t show any of the units. Well, that’s my cue I suppose. I approached her and told her I was a realtor, but I was busy with a customer at the moment and if she waited I could do a quick consultation and potentially show her apartment that day. She was so excited, I wish all my customers were like that. Apparently she has spent days going through Zillow trying to schedule appointments, but with no success.
After my walkthorugh I sat her and the Mr. down in the clubroom at Nu River. With my macbook in hand we reviewed the market and I provided her with a solid snapshot of the inventory and the pros and cons of each building ; total money requirements, association approval time, parking, amenities and availability. It was still early in the day around 1pm. A few of the listings they liked I had great relationships with some of the listing agents – those were easy to get codes. I called and called until I was able to connect with the balance of the listing agents. Within 30 minutes I had 4 MLS properties set up, and 2 off market properties ready to show.
Fast forward 4 hours, they found the one they liked the most. The next morning we wrote up the intent to lease supplied all their documents to the Landlord representative; ID, Income, application, Credit and intent to lease. The contract was executed and they were on the nest step to association approval. The unit only came with 1 parking spot, that was an issue. I called the homeowners association and tracked down an owner with an empty spot. He initially wanted $125 a month, but I negotiated on their behalf and it was leased for $100 a month.
Today I finished the move in and added another set of happy customers to my list. We will be working together on a purchase in the future. Until now they get to enjoy this beautiful 1 BR for $2000.00 a month annually. The unit has 14ft ceilings, exposed ductwork, polished floors and impact windows. Reminiscent of NY style lofts.
